Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Australia’s developer darling Atlassian, Zynga, AirBnB, Rackspace and less-techy corporate brethren Levi's and Veritable Vegetable have been recognised as the most bike-friendly employers in San Francisco.

The tech companies scored the gong at San Francisco's annual Bike to Work Day, at which Mayor Edwin Lee and the SF Bicycle Coalition announced the first-ever Bicycle-Friendly Business Awards.

The awards were chosen based on nominations from SFBC members and members of the general public. Atlassian, secured its seat for- outstanding bike commuter education and encouragement programs.

The company provides a bicycle parking room for employees, plans bicycle outings for employees, and offers bikes for employees to use at their leisure for daytime errands. It also offers a bike buddy programme which matches veteran bike commuters with employees looking to get started to help show them plan safe routes.

Rackspace picked the "Outstanding in-house bike repair station" prize, and was also commended for its bicycle parking facilities, showers and lockers, in-house bike repair shop and plans for employee bicycle outings, bike partnerships & discounts. Zynga's in-office bicycle parking was declared "outstanding" while accommodation-finding website AirBnB was lauded for the visiting mechanic who gives bike tune-ups for staff's two-wheelers. ®
